Nika is a Kiwi girl with a Cook Island dad and a Kiwi mum. One of her favourite things is to visit her Papa, who is world-famous in Wellington for cooking the best donuts. He used to sell them at the Newton markets, where Nika's aunties and their mates would use their housie money to buy all the donuts.

Meet her many cousins, her aunties and uncles and her nana, all wonderfully characterised by Bruce Potter in his bright and dynamic illustrations. There's also a recipe for donuts at the back of the book for readers to more
